Roméo Lavia continues to impress in the Premier League: ‘De Bruyne told me to replicate what I already showed him in training’


Holder for the third consecutive time with Southampton at only 18 years old, Roméo Lavia won his first victory in the Premier League this Saturday against the foxes by Youri Tielemans and co (1-2).

If a Belgian shone in the encounter between Leicester and Southampton, it is good Romeo Lavia. Still as confident, clean and intelligent in his game as during his two previous outings, the defensive midfielder was above all surprised by his calm and maturity despite his young age. For the second time this season, Roméo Lavia, who touched 49 balls, finished the game with a pass success rate of over 90% (91%). The Devil (for the moment…) also impressed defensively, with two successful tackles, while he had a rather tough opponent in front of him in the person of James Maddison (sole scorer of foxes). Another interesting statistic: since the start of the season, the Belgian has won… 71% of his duels. One thing is certain, Roméo Lavia is ready for the Premier League.

In front, Timothy Castagne was incumbent while Youri Tielemansaffected by transfer rumours, did not come on until the 65th minute. Dennis Praet he remained on the bench for the whole meeting.
